Why Merino Wool?
Core Spun Technology
Core Spun yarn provides extra durability while still offering merino's properties next to the skin. The nylon inner core is wrapped with Merino Wool and a touch of spandex for stretch.
Minus33 Merino Wool regulates the amount of moisture on your skin by absorbing any moisture or sweat on your body. Then, the absorbed moisture evaporates out of the fabric into the atmosphere.
Merino Wool fibers naturally reject any bacteria in moisture or sweat as it is wicked away, so foot fungus and smelly odor will not be a problem while wearing our products.
Insulates When Wet
Wool will absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling wet or clammy. If you do get wet, wool will insulate you better than cotton or polyester materials.
Don’t worry about sunburn on a sunny day summiting a peak. Lightweight layers have a UPF rating of 25. Midweight and Expedition have a UPF rating of 50+.
Merino Wool has a low environmental footprint and naturally returns to the elements. Shear a merino sheep in the morning, and in the afternoon they’re happily nibbling their way towards renewing next season’s clip.

This garment (I bought the light grey) is just what I needed for layer in all seasons. The light weight is great for a hike that starts out cold then warms leading to need to shed top layer. The breeze filters through the fibers which protect from the sun.

Thank you for the great review!
I have been hiking in the Adirondacks this fall using this hoodie as my baselayer, and it's perfect. It's super lightweight, perfect for when my body heats up during a hike in 40 degree weather and I need to shed my top layer. The hood allows me to still keep my ears and neck warm, and unzip to ventilate as needed. Because wool is naturally antimicrobial I can prolong its life by wearing it for several hikes before washing, and it doesn't stink. I'd love to see it in more colors, and also a midweight version.
